Yay! We finally get a sneak peek at the cover of Drew’s new book, Wildflower!
We knew that Drew Barrymore was writing another book, but we had no idea what the cover would look like until now.
Yesterday she revealed the cover of Wildflower, a collection of autobiographical essay, and she looks…well, pretty as a picture. The Blended star is holding one of those titular flowers and appears to be floating in mid-air. Or jumping for joy. Either way, she looks pretty blissed out.
When Wildflower comes out Oct. 27, we’ll get to read about Drew’s upbringing, her reflections on growing up in the limelight, and the joys of motherhood.
Back in February Dutton Publishing stated the book “will include stories about living on her own at 14, getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross country road trip, saying goodbye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led to the most important thing in her life, which is motherhood.”
You know, your typical childhood.
“I have wanted to write a book for many years, but the irony of writing this with two young kids was wild,” Barrymore told People recently. “It was a lot to take on, but my daughters and my life so far have inspired me to look back and remember moments in my life and write about them.”
You can pre-order the book here.
I am so excited for Drew’s new film “Miss You Already” that comes out later this summer … I have added some great new stills of Drew from the film to our gallery!

Drew Barrymore is a mom-of-two, an A-list actress, producer, beauty brand owner, and, most recently, a wine entrepreneur. But one skill that she’s yet to add to her resume? Cooking.
“I’m just not perfect in the kitchen,” Barrymore, 40, tells PEOPLE. “But I’m getting there slowly.”
So what does Barrymore make for her growing family with “different tastes?” “Salmon and veggies are regular at my house,” she says, adding that daughters Olive, 2 1/2, and Frankie, 14 months, are big fans of the fish.
And the actress — who is “very organized about the kids’ food” — always makes sure her two little ones “eat really well.”
“They get protein, starch and veggies, and I always balance it out,” she says. Another staple the former longtime vegetarian likes to whip up in the kitchen? “I can grill a mean steak now,” she shares.
The star’s culinary skills are also on full-display during Sunday dinners with friends. “My girlfriends and I cook a lot on Sunday nights together and it’s a group effort. So I’m really good in a potluck situation and I’m really good at one-pot meals.”
But, Barrymore is the first to admit: “I’m not a lifestyle expert.”
“I’m still trying to get a dinner party together for the summer and trust me I won’t be cooking for it,” she explains, and the same goes for date nights—”I eat take-out with my husband, [Will Kopelman].”
Although she’s still coordinating her upcoming summer soiree, now that she has created her own wine—Barrymore by Carmel Road Pinot Grigio—she has already found the perfect recipe to pair with it: an apple, brie and arugula grilled cheese.
“I like the idea that this was really kid-friendly if you did it with just brie and apple,” she explains about creating the recipe. As for a wine substitute for the little ones? Barrymore suggests apple juice.
For Barrymore’s apple and brie grilled cheese recipe, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.

I can’t wait to see this film!
Orlando, Fla. – July 6, 2015 – The Capital Grille today announced that seven of California’s great female winemakers and collaborators, including award-winning actress Drew Barrymore, will come together to celebrate women and wine as part of the restaurant’s seventh annual The Generous Pour event.
The Generous Pour will celebrate the unique role women play in winemaking with this year’s offerings. From July 6 through August 30, 2015, for $28 per person with dinner*, The Capital Grille will offer eight remarkable wines crafted, designed or owned by women from some of California’s most acclaimed vineyards. Guests are invited to explore and enjoy as many of these remarkable wines and varietals as they like.
Nowhere is the rise of women in the industry more prevalent than in California. Women represent half of the graduates from the state’s top enology programs, and are employed as lead winemaker at ten percent of California vineyards.
“The Generous Pour collection is a celebration of the vital role women play in the growing wine industry,” noted George Miliotes, The Capital Grille’s Master Sommelier and one of only 229 in the world to have earned that prestigious title. “We are proud to feature eight exceptional wines created and shaped by seven extremely talented women, from highly-regarded California wineries,” he added.
Nearly one-third of U.S. adults who order wine in restaurants report that they are more likely to order a certain wine in a restaurant if they find its origins interesting. With this in mind, The Capital Grille brought together these seven distinguished women, each representing a distinct approach to winemaking.
Their wines were also selected with a storied vintage in mind including the national debut of Drew Barrymore’s Pinot Grigio, a delightful, crowd-pleasing white to share with friends and family.
Also to be featured is the first public release of the remarkable 2007 Kinton Syrah, exclusive to The Capital Grille for The Generous Pour event. “The winemakers at Kinton produced an incredible Syrah in 2007, a storybook vintage in the state,” said Miliotes. “One of the more notable wines in this year’s The Generous Pour line-up, nowhere will you taste the perfection of the 2007 vintage more than in a glass of this smooth Santa Barbara red.”
Join @CapitalGrille and celebrate female winemakers. #GenerousPour
The Generous Pour collection includes eight remarkable wines by seven talented women:
The Enthusiast. Drew Barrymore delights in a wine’s ability to bring people together. It is that passion which inspired the actress to establish Barrymore Wines in the coastal winegrowing region of Monterey, California. The debut of Barrymore Pinot Grigio can be enjoyed at this year’s Generous Pour and is the perfect way to begin your evening.
The Visionary. Julia Jackson, the youngest daughter of legendary winemaker Jess Jackson, is the visionary leading the Jackson Family Estates into the future. Having grown up in the vineyards of Santa Barbara, she has literally spent a lifetime learning about the art of wine and hand selected the wine from the Jackson family library to featuring exclusively at The Capital Grille for The Generous Pour event this year.
The Gardener. Marcia Monahan has always had a close relationship with the land. When not planting grapes at Matanzas Creek, she’s growing vegetables and herbs at home. Her respect for the land and sustainable farming practices makes her masterfully crafted Matanzas Creek Merlot one of the finest in the country.
The Spaniard. Laura Diaz Muñoz began her winemaking career in her native Spain before putting down roots in California, where her approach is influenced by her memories drinking Albariño in her native Spain and smelling the sea in every glass. Two of the wines featured in this year’s Generous Pour – Mt. Brave Cabernet Sauvignon and the debut of her own Galerie “Naissance” Sauvignon Blanc – are sure to earn rave reviews from The Capital Grille’s guests.
The Conductor. Denise Shurtleff and her team direct every aspect of the winemaking process. From nurturing the grapes on the vine to bottling their exceptional wines, one tastes her dedication in every sip of Cambria “Julia’s Vineyard” Pinot Noir.
The Virtuoso. Lisa Valtenbergs, born with an acute sense of smell and armed with a degree in agricultural business with an emphasis in viticulture, was destined to become a winemaker. At Stonestreet, Lisa uses her skill to create remarkable wines, including the highly acclaimed “Bear Point” Chardonnay.
The Scholar. Kristina Werner has a master’s degree in viticulture and experience making wine in regions around the world. She brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to every wine she crafts and lives by the mantra, “Never stop learning and never get bored.” Her Bordeaux-style Arrowood Cabernet Reserve Speciale is one of a kind.
During The Generous Pour, The Capital Grille servers will provide tasting notes and suggest pairings for each course, based on individual preferences. This will allow guests to craft their own personalized wine dinner.
